Ghost Towns and Mines


A huge ore bin, a stationary boiler, and other ruins of a large mill are located on the hillside above Upper Jefferson. Several mine adits can be seen on the opposite side of the canyon.

Just up the canyon from the town is a large tailings pile and scant ruins from another mine.

Because there is so much to see at this site, I’ve decided to provide a separate page for each area of interest. This page is dedicated to Mill and Mines in the area of Upper Jefferson. Follow the link below to visit my Jefferson, NV page and see the other features of this historic mining complex.
